where children don't need to fear their own government. and they have a say, sunni's and christians. that's what america stands for, that's what we will stand for sanctions and consequences to those who persecute and support for those who work for the common good. >> rose: they have the resolution to increase the government three times. meanwhile the killing in syria continues. they're up to 30,000 estimated dead. the impasse is just one of the many strains on relations between russia and the united states. iran is another is the dis trust over nato's defense shield. earlier this month the u.s. agency of the international development to lead russia. i'm pleased to have sergey lavrov back at this table, welcome. >> thank you very much, nice to be back. >> rose: u.s.-russia relations. >> yes, i believe we agree that these relations should be promoted. when president obama came to the whitehouse, he and his team assessed the relationship between moscow and washington and suggested what they call the reset of those relations which we supported. and i believe that since then, we have b
. this is an example of us doubling down on failure when the government gets into things, a lot of time, it messes them up in the impact example is freddy and fannie and the entire economic mess we're in which was created by the government deciding to get involved in home mortgages. how many more things do we want to injecthe government in. they're the ones driving this cost. >> our next question will come from bill milr and go to jonathan dine. >> the u.s. postal svice is very important to most of the people in this room today. it is now trying to go into a program that would compete and be unfair to newspapers. in many cases, newspapers the largest customer for the post office in the community. what i like to know is, what is your position on this issue and the other issues of closing rural post offices and iminating saturday livery. what's your position on this? what would do you in the senate to help rural newspapers and community newspapers that depend on the ptal service? >> like many of the things run by the government, the postal office is one of them that's very inefficient. i have a friend wh
governance survey and are the basis for our discussion for the first 45 minutes of this edition of the "washington journal." good morning. today is saturday, september 29. we want to find out from you about divided government. are you in favor of it? would you prefer to see one party, two parties, three parties? one party versus divided government, your preferences is our topic for the first segment of the program. 202-585-3880 is our number for democrats. republicans can call us at 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. if you're calling outside the u.s., 202-585-3883. we'll show you those numbers throughout the segment. if you want to get in touch with us via social media, the address, twitter, twithtwith cspanwj. on facebook, it's facebook.com/cspan. if you want to send us an email, that address is journal @organize org. -- is journal @c-span.org. this is the gallup poll we're talking about. it's the gallup annual governance survey. they write while americans tend to lean toward one-party government over divided government in presidential election years, this year finds th
's possible, that time is not unlimited. i thought it was a warning to the iranian government is a difficult deal with. i thought it was a important speech that the president gave yesterday in my. >> >> host: how about mitt romney can, you assess from what yoaf heard and have seen over the months. is there anything close to what you might call a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encaps late it? >> guest: he it a smart and successful person. he's been talking about foreign policy. it's not the issue he wants to emphasis in the campaign. he wants the campaign to be obviously about the economy and about our unemployment rate. and it's an unusual position for republican to be in to be running against democrat who has a strong record on national security. i think that's been difficult for the romney campaign, you know, i have worked for both republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i'm not a political person. but if seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of a democrat and sometimes accuse democrats of being weak on national security. on this ele
'm talking about the government. you may not want to go to gsa at this forest to veto this point because you can't get a counterfeit product if you go to each pay one of the non-trusted channels -- ebay one of the most non-trusted channels. on our infrastructure we are going to hope it is all assembled in a good way and there is no vulnerability interest that we tend to agree that all of these components. and now you are responsible. it's almost the end of the delivery part of whatever that trusted supplier was coming and now you are going to have to operate. operation requires that we actually follow best practices. and enforce information assurance policy. all of us want our 24/7 uptime of these things, so the 24/7 of time without having the security process in place also mean is available and accessible to anybody that might be able to penetrate that former ability. within the guidelines and other simple information assurance control help manage or reduce that risk of operation, and that's an essential handoff once we've delivered the product to market, and we are going to operate we shou
across greece and the first general strike since the new government took office in june. in the greek capital athens, tens of thousands took to the streets, some hurling firebombs, breaking windows, and setting fires. spain is expected to unveil massive cuts today in its budget plan for next year. on wednesday, protesters are rounded the spanish parliament for a second day to protest against austerity. opposition activists are claiming more than 300 people were killed in syria's violence on wednesday, the highest single-day toll of the 18-month- old conflict to date. the killings include an alleged massacre in the town of dh iyabia, where some 40 people were reportedly slain. video released by opposition activists shows rows of bloodied corpses covered in blankets. the nine nations refugee agency is warning up to 700,000 people may wind up fleeing syria by the end of the year, far greater than the previous estimate. some 294,000 refugees have already left syria this year. in an address to the u.n., egyptian president morsi criticized the regime of bashar al-assad, but warned against i
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. and i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region -- including egypt, tunisia and yemen -- have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities, and called for calm. and so have religious authorities around the globe. but understand, the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. they are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded -- the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully, that diplomacy can take the place of war, that in an interdependent world, all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy, or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. if we are se
challenges to come, i am convinced that ultimately, government is for the people, by the people. it is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace and our world. >> a october 3, mitt romney and president obama will meet in their first presidential debate, moderate. watch on c-span. your reaction, calls, e-mails and tweets after the debate. follow online at c-span.org. >> george washington university hosted a discussion yesterday on oil and gas production in the persian gulf. focusing mostly iraq. they speak about tensions between saudi arabia and iran. -- for the fall semester. and i would just mention in the way of an advertisement that we will be having our next program on october 23. it will be on jordan. jordan, i think it put a title out there of -- in the cross hairs again. we are fortunate to have the vice-president for studies at carnegie endowment for national peace. and a very good personal friend who will be coming as well as dr. kurt ryan, an associate of the latin .ppellati tonight as we gather, i always express
[inaudible] i hope one day we have the courage to elected government. look at what has happened in the region. you know, we spoke about the arab spring. it is a beautiful world, [inaudible] it is not romantic, the arab spring. the islamic forces are gaining power. nobody knows what will happen after bashar al-assad will get out of syria eventually. we have to be very careful. regarding the settlement, there is a gap between what people think about the settlement, i call it the jewish communities and reality. you can tell me, what is the actual percentage of settlement -- of jewish homes occupying land in [inaudible name]. building settlements -- jewish underground homes occupying the land? >> 3%. >> it is 3%. i wish it was 50 or 90 or 100%. that is not the case. most of it is vacant. the idea of the jews cannot believe this. i do not accept it. today in israel, we have all the israelis, 20%, where i live, though, like i ago, nobody can tell us if we do not live there, you have to move out. i think we need to get to the idea that it is not about the settlement, it is much deeper than that. [in
that the new egyptian government has a set of policies about which we are not yet certain. i think there was a lot of discomfort correctly in this country when these attacks took place last week, an american ambassador was killed, a friend of the arab people, and the egyptian president did not say and do the kinds of things that the libyan government said and did. there was a caution, there was a hesitation of alienating the extremist islamic groups in egypt, something the libyan people, libyan government didn't do and then the libyan government encouraged and participated in tens of thousands of libyans coming out on the streets and expressing their support for the united states and regretted the killing of an ambassador. those things haven't happened in egypt. so president morsi is walking a fine line, but he's contributing by refusing while in egypt to say and do the things that he will say to western businessmen and will say while he's here in the united states. >> the president is now at the united nations. we'll take a quick break and when we come back, the president's speech
denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor
a government representative rather than just direct my%. host: girls age 14 can get birth control at new york's schools. that's one story you probably have heard about. and in the "new york times this morning, there's this in their national section -- they are frustrated with mayor rahm emanuel. in florida, a democratic caller, good morning. caller: thanks for taking my call. good morning. the u.n. was created, basically, to undermine the united states. they tried at first with the league of nations. people in our government back then would not accept it. so then they came back with fdr with the united nations. he was progressive and he jumped right into it. if you just look, nobody in the un is our friend, hardly anybody. it was basically created to undermine the united states. host: what about japan, the united kingdom, france, spain, mexico? caller: i think mexico was complicity with the gunrunning thing and mexico is not really our friend at. japan, i don't know. but for the most part, everything out that the united states wants to do usually gets voted down by china and russia, who are a
groups held in the government controlled capital of damascus in an attempt at a gathering to position itself as an alternative to the armed rebels, citing the internal opposition on the syrian to cater. who are these people and what do you make of what they are saying? >> that's a good question. many fault lines in the syrian opposition. differences between the exiled syrian opposition a set of s-sierra, those fighting and dying on the ground in syria and those who are little more religious commission may come a arab opposition and those that are more secular opposition. and then you have those calling for the overthrow of the regime and those that are still blind to negotiate with the regime. there's been an attempt by outside powers, all these different groups of rebel forces to try to find a coherent center that can bring everything together in a coordinated way against the regime that would also draw outside support more readily as well as those fence sitters in the syrian population who don't necessarily support bashar al-assad regime, they don't see any viable alternative yet. o
is not under the power of the government, of the administration. they have their own laws and that's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. and the government has paved the way for the highest form of freedom for all people, and you see that comfortably people criticize, people sometimes trespass the border lines of proper protest and they insult one another. as a president, i'm in the middle of the people of iran without drawing any borders, without drawing any red lines, and we converse. >> right. but this isn't just any protester. this could be your daughter in the future. it is the daughter of your predecessor, the president. a fairly significant moment that she has been imprisoned. do you feel uncomfortable that this lady is in jail? >> translator: you see, let's separate the t arguments, the two topics. the fact that whether i'm happy at anyone going to prison, no, never. never. no one should go to prison. but also keep in mind that in any country, everyone must be treated equally under the laws. no one must have or must receive special treatment because of having be
during the school band challenges government authorities in the process of affecting standards to set equally strong standards for what kids can find in vending machines and what kids find in stores or the so-called cafeteria lines. bottom-line too much junk food available to kids in school and we as parents and citizens let alone military college, national secure in our country and interests must be doing something about it. my colleagues will offer their concerns and comments on our report. let me offer some simple facts to get us started. four hundred billion calories' of junk food sold in schools every year. fax number 2. if that was all candy bars laid end to end and would encircle the globe six times. one in four of children are ineligible to serve military services simply because they're too overweight. 25%. the next closest qualifier, asthma, at 4%. it is easy to link this obesity epidemic to impact on the national security of the country. we are trying to manage an all volunteer force of 25% of candidates from which we draw from people and ineligible to serve. fact number 5,
apparently shut it down. u.s. government is not required to mediate any disagreements between the two parties of the blue mountain libya partnership. saying it is currently satisfactory. there was no immediate response on the comment. a u.s. official is not denying reports the administration is laying the initial groundwork behind the attack as many as one dozen possible targets, ashley. ashley: thank you very much. let's get into this a little bit more, joining me now, retired united states army lieutenant colonel and former fox news middle east former senior advisor to governor romney and also author of the book "the coming revolution, struggling for freedom in the middle east." as we get more details on the events prior to the benghazi attacks it appears in the days, the weeks and the months prior there was plenty of warning signs. why is it these were the very least ignored? >> the main problem the administration has in libya is being unable to connect information from the various agencies. the fact there are militia on the ground proceeding as rebels. penetrated by al qaeda. because it w
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that
